Since 1978 we have been providing affordable, interesting classes to thousands of our community members, but the impact of Covid-19  forced us to take two semesters off, despite strenuous efforts to find alternative solutions.

The lack of safe acceptable spaces available to hold our classes continues. As you may know, we conducted an online survey of 4,392 former sudents. We found that a substantial majority of them already had experience or were very willing to use Zoom as our virtual classroom platform. We were very encouraged to move forward in that direction and have done so. There really was no alternative.
